Hedges and verges encroaching on footpath

Reported in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 15:53, Tuesday 30 June 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 372999.

Hedges and verge overgrown on to footpath. Meaning it’s impossible to walk on footpath and dangerous for mobility scooters and pushchairs. The road is narrow and there is no path opposite side. This road is used by tractors and large farm machinery. This has been overgrown for months and is getting worst. This is a derelict farm and I believe it is owned by the council
